Kim started rosemaling six years ago by taking a class at North House Folk School with rosemaling instructor Mary Schliep. She fell in love with it and has been painting ever since. Kim has studied with several Vesterheim Gold Medal winning rosemaling instructors. She has also studied with Norwegian instructors here in the US and studied traditional rosemaling and other Scandinavian folk art in Norway. Kim’s goal is to bring together a blend of traditional Scandinavian folk art with modern techniques and point of view.
